  patzer2: Black displays impressive endgame technique. Black's advance of the "isolated pawn" and active King prove too much for White's connected pawns in this instructive Rook and Pawn endgame.

  patzer2: Since 39. Kd1 loses by force, I wonder if 39. f3+ might have held.
Mar-04-09  nummerzwei: I think your comments are quite odd.
Of course, 38...Ke4 blunders a pawn after 39.f3+ Ke5 40.Kd3, which is why Black didn't play it.

She probably played 38...Kc4, the most natural move, which wins easily.

Note that this explanation is supported by the further course of the game, as White could have tried 40.Rxc3, which wouldn't be possible after 38...Kc4.
